viscosity issue adding extra waxes?I have the following formula….without any thickener, initial aesthetics is like that of a regular cream, after 24 hours becomes a thick cream.(Formula A) Water, glycerin, stearyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, stearic acid, shea butter, coconut oil, sunflower oil, capric caprylic triglycerides, isopropyl myristate, emulsifiers, fragrance and preservativeNow that I need a much thicker version, like a body butter, I decided to increase the waxes, add beeswax, cetyl esters and xanthan gum (FormulaMy issue is that Formula B is a flowing lotion, when I was expecting a thicker product. I’ve made the same thing without the gum and replacing emulsifiers but I’m still having the same issue.What am I missing here? Thanks.
